The final COVID-19 travel limitations imposed by Morocco have been eliminated. Visitors won’t need to provide a vaccination record or PCR test results to enter the country after September 30, 2022.
Yet, before admission, a passenger health form must be filled out.
The omicron epidemic in November 2021 caused Morocco to restrict foreign flights and ferry services. On February 7, 2022, Morocco resumed accepting visitors.
What criteria must be met to enter Morocco?
An immunization record or a negative PCR test result are no longer prerequisites for boarding a flight to Morocco. But before you can enter, you still need to fill out a health form. Random quick antigen testing may still be performed on certain travelers at the airports after arrival. After 48 hours of arrival, further PCR testing may also be necessary for some travelers.
Children under the age of six are not subject to entrance restrictions. Visitors should also keep in mind that masks and temperature checks are necessary for cafés, restaurants, cultural venues, public transportation, and taxis after they arrive in Morocco.
Morocco’s top things to do.
Walk Essaouira’s winding medieval streets.
The town of Essaouira, which is located on Morocco’s Atlantic coast, is arguably most known for its connection to Game of Thrones.
Season three of the TV show served as the backdrop for the scenes depicting the fictional city of Astapor. It could look familiar to you because of the scene where Daenerys first encounters her army of the Unsullied.
The UNESCO-listed city is a center for culture in addition to being shown on television. You may locate stores offering regional arts and crafts, eateries, and cafés by meandering through its little alleyways. There are a lot more items here than just the typical pottery shops and carpets.
It is also notorious for being windy, so use caution. When going down the seaside, especially if you have little children with you, you might wish to conceal your hair and exercise caution.
Sample delicious traditional dishes
Gastronomy in Morocco is undoubtedly one of the main attractions. Most cities’ streets are filled with the aroma of freshly made falafel, tagines, and pastries. Since mint tea is a symbol of welcome in Moroccan culture, it’s practically a given that you’ll be served this sweet green tea while you’re there.
Visit the Berber villages and camps for handmade meals if you want an authentic experience of Moroccan cuisine. The regional cuisine of North Africa, known as Amazigh, draws its inspiration from a variety of places, including the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert.
In Marrakech, go to the Jardin Majorelle.
In 1980, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner renovated this 2.5-acre botanical garden. Jacques Majorelle, a painter, created the initial version of it in the 1920s using an artist’s color scheme.
Lily ponds, fountains, and streams provide a pleasant refuge in the middle of the scorching metropolis, and water is a major theme throughout the garden. Along with a sizable plant collection, there is a bookstore, a picture studio, a boutique offering Saint Laurent-inspired goods, and a courtyard cafe.
Explore the shops at a Souk.
One of Morocco’s most well-known tourist destinations is its souks. The majority of cities and villages have these markets where you may buy anything from ceramics, textiles, and furniture to footwear and musical instruments.
The majority of tourists that visit Morocco transit via Marrakech, which is home to some of the biggest and greatest souks. Each sells a unique range of things but come to Jemaa el-Fna Square after dark if you’re searching for fantastic meals. There are several food vendors here with hundreds of kiosks.
Sunrise in the Sahara
The greatest way to appreciate the Sahara Desert’s breathtaking splendor is to camp there, even though it may appear scary. Numerous travel companies provide excursions where everything is planned for you.
One of the primary motivations for venturing out into the world’s biggest desert dunes is the amazing unobstructed view of the sky. Numerous constellations, including the Milky Way, may be seen when you are far from major cities or towns where there is little to no light pollution.
As the sun rises over the desert, you can see how the scenery changes as morning breaks. You can ride a camel out into the Sahara if camping isn’t your thing.
